Corporate Governance – Our commitment to value-oriented corporate management
The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of OVB Holding AG are strongly committed to company management geared towards adding value. We welcome and stand by the standards created by virtue of the German Corporate Governance Code ("GCGC") relating to the management and supervision of listed companies. These standards enhance the transparency and efficiency of company management and instil confidence in international and national investors, clients, financial advisors and employees, and the general public.
The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board alike, ensure that OVB monitors its own Corporate Governance structures throughout the group on a regular basis, developing and refining them continually.
For general information concerning the Corporate Governance Code please visit the website of the Government Commission on the German Corporate Governance Code (www.corporate-governance-code.de).
Apart from monitoring the financial accounting process, the Audit Committee concerned itself primarily with the effectiveness of the internal control system, the risk management system and the internal auditing system, the audit of financial statements and the compliance management system. The interim financial reports will be discussed with the Management Board by the Audit Committee prior to publication.
